Take a Trip Around the World with ROBLOX and Finding Dory!

It’s a dangerous business, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet on the ground, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to. Though, that doesn’t sound all that bad, does it? Join ROBLOX on an adventure as we go Around the World to some famous locales in search of hidden treasure!

It’s always smart to learn a thing or two about a place before you travel there. There isn’t a better place to learn than school, right? Take some quizzes to test your knowledge about a couple international locales and win a prize if you pass the exams at ROBLOX High School.

Venetian shades come from Venice, and Venice is going to be in Hide and Seek Extreme. What do these have in common? Not much – but if you find the hidden items you’ll earn an award for your efforts.

Some of the coolest places are in the past. But unless you have some gigawatts and a DeLorean, we can’t just visit the Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt. In the meantime, museums make a pretty good stand in for a time machine. Believe it or not, the museums in RoCitizens contain a wealth of information (including where to find prizes, according to rumors).

And while you are trotting about on a grand tour, be sure to keep an eye out for Dory! She is on her own adventure, but you might just cross paths with Dory and her new friends during your explorations!

Check out the games here, and be sure to see Finding Dory in theaters June 17th in 3D!
